Tamale supplies in Boston/Cambridge/Somerville area?

l0b0SKI | Dec 1, 2012 10:01 PM


It is tamales season and I am looking for some supplies. Looking for some local help.
In the past I gotten stuff from and but last year I was not pleased with the products I was sent and El Chavo was always closed when we drove there. Would like to shop local if I can.

Looking for:
FRESH masa not the dry stuff you can get at most stores.
Hojas (Corn Husks)
Manteca (Morrell Snow Cap if available)
Dried New Mexico Red Chiles (a nice big bag of these would be helpful as in most specialty they come in way too small bags for too many monies)
